Together We are a Community, Serving in Love
As believers, God desires for us to embody the character of Christ. He desires for us to rely upon the strength and wisdom of the Holy Spirit so that we can serve lovingly and sacrificially. While from a humanistic perspective, the concept may be difficult to grasp, when we enter into relationship with Jesus Christ, He clothes us with His righteousness.
Therefore, as we are clothed in His righteousness, through our various acts of servitude, we have an opportunity to convey Christ and His love to the world around us. This means that we ought to see ourselves as beacons of hope, serving to uplift each other and our communities.
Furthermore, we all play a role, and the serving field is level. No one light is brighter than the other. Yes, there is something significant that we all can contribute. It doesn’t matter what our skillsets or giftings are, within us lies the ability to share love and uplift the hearts of others.
So, as we purpose to love one another (as God first loved us), let us serve one another and the world humbly and wholeheartedly. After all, this is what it truly means to make a fruitful impact for the Kingdom of God.
